The answer is simple, either you are not liking what you are doing or what you are doing is not for you. Due to this you “Procrastinate” or you try to “Escape” from reality.
Instead of wasting your time escaping from your present life, invest your time in figuring out what is the life you want to live. Instead of slipping into that rathole of scrolling through the feed, go watch or read about different topics and see what interests you and maybe you’ll find something which will make your life more interesting and which will push you to go forward in life instead of sitting on the couch and scrolling through the feed.
